    Right now, using the settings posted below i had passed Memtest for couple of hours, SuperPi and Priming Blend right now with v25.6,
    seems like stable. Will work on tRFC and tRTP next.

    Standard Timing Control
    CAS Latency Time........................: 5
    tRCD .........................................: 5
    tRP'...........................................: 5
    tRAS..........................................: 12

    Advanced Timing Control
    tRRD...........................................: 3
    tWTR..........................................: 8
    tWR............................................: 4

    Looks good. Just keep in mind you do not want to set any one way low as it may make lowering the others fail. So try to keep at it slowly, lowering of all throughout the process by a few at a time if you get what I mean

    Hey mate, how are ya? How's the 45 doing, tweaking? :)

    Ok, i had more time for my tests to continue and here is some results.
    But first of all, i have to say that there is real improvements in memory speed benches with F10 bios than with F9. Mem.Read improved in like 400 MB/s more and Latency droped by 10 ns with SPD set to AUTO.
    That's one, second, i had tested the setting that you suggested and i got tightened them to these below and i got them stable.

    Standard Timing Control
    CAS Latency Time........................: 5
    tRCD .........................................: 5
    tRP'...........................................: 5
    tRAS..........................................: 12

    Advanced Timing Control
    tRRD...........................................: 3
    tWTR..........................................: 8
    tWR............................................: 4
    tRFC...........................................: 49 (Lowest i got, 48 got errors)
    tRTP...........................................: 3
    Command Rate (CMD) ....................: 2

    Channel A
    Static tRead Value.........................:7
    Channel B
    Static tRead Value.........................:7

    But, while testing and benching, i found interesting results with memory SPD set to AUTO
    and using tweaked settings manually. Used Everest bench with 4-5 runs and taking average.

    ..............SPD AUTO...... vs........ MANUAL SETTINGS

    READ........ 6655 MB/s ...................6728 MB/s
    WRITE ......6977 MB/s ...................6980 MB/s
    COPY .......7217 MB/s ....................7208 MB/s
    LATENCY ...75.3 ns .......................75.1 ns

    To my big surprise, i don't see any improvements in memory speed with Auto settings vs Manual tweaked.
    Should i try and tighten even more to see some results?

    Ya, had to redo my water loop which I did not plan on at all beforehand. So needless to say I have been gone much longer then expected! All is well on the P45 front here! Soon as I get caught up on posts here I will be off to do some tweaking and installing the programs I do not plan to use (The Gigabyte ones, I am going to install and document somethings and write up a review on the board). Then of course I need to install alot of my things after that


    Looks good! Ya there must be one or two more settings that could use some adjustments. Does your BIOS have the drive strength profiles and CMD/Ctrl Clock adjustments? Not sure what All Ones I am asking But I can post a image if you would like. What I am basically asking, is there a page or two of settings in your BIOS that are Not on the templates I have been using? Like is the many settings where the trd setting is, on it's own page?

    My board has these pages, with many settings I have not seen anyone ask anything about or mentioned anywhere? Maybe it is only DS4 and up?

    Cool. Just wanted to see if other boards also had them.

    Now, time to learn about the Driving Pulls this week! Any info you see feel free to M me or add to the memory guide

    Thanks for the reply w/ Images. That is exactly what pages I was asking about, As I noticed they were not in the Bios Previous to this one for my board

    I missed you here, should i google and gather knowledge about what settings to use with drivings and timings, or you'll post some settings to try next week?
